So that, they impacted on death or disease complications and even disability. There were needs for prevention efforts and early detection that could be done at home. Today, the early detection was carried out by health workers in health care facilities through skrinning. The use of smartphones could minimize the delay of health care. This would be an opportunity to develop smart phone applications as media for stroke early detection because most people used smartphones in their daily lives. This study aimed to identify the use of smart phones as media for stroke early detection. Comprehensive literature analysis through Google Scholar, Proquest, and EBSCO in the last 5 years, with keywords: stroke early detection, sourceinformation, smartphone application. Inclusion criteria were smartphone application and stroke articles in the past 5 years. Data were analyzed in a table consisted of title, author, year, and result. A total of 21 articles had showed the use of smartphones might provide sign assessment and mild stroke symptoms experienced by individuals effectively and efficiently. These media had been globally used for early detection and information sources about strokes. Smartphone applications became innovative media that could help individuals to carry out early detection and obtain practical information about stroke and be accountable. The results of this literature study could be used as references to determine the form of appropriate intervention ormedia as support toward the efforts of stroke case prevention in Indonesia.

Abstract


Stroke is one of the highest causes of catastrophic death in Indonesia. Lack of knowledge and public awareness about stroke caused the delay of health care and post-disease recovery. So that, they impacted on death or disease complications and even disability. There were needs for prevention efforts and early detection that could be done at home. Today, the early detection was carried out by health workers in health care facilities through skrinning. The use of smartphones could minimize the delay of health care. This would be an opportunity to develop smart phone applications as media for stroke early detection because most people used smartphones in their daily lives. This study aimed to identify the use of smart phones as media for stroke early detection. Comprehensive literature analysis through Google Scholar, Proquest, and EBSCO in the last 5 years, with keywords: stroke early detection, sourceinformation, smartphone application. Inclusion criteria were smartphone application and stroke articles in the past 5 years. Data were analyzed in a table consisted of title, author, year, and result. A total of 21 articles had showed the use of smartphones might provide sign assessment and mild stroke symptoms experienced by individuals effectively and efficiently. These media had been globally used for early detection and information sources about strokes. Smartphone applications became innovative media that could help individuals to carry out early detection and obtain practical information about stroke and be accountable. The results of this literature study could be used as references to determine the form of appropriate intervention ormedia as support toward the efforts of stroke case prevention in Indonesia.
